Birthday Layout

EDITED TO ADD: It's the last day of voting at Lesli's site. I submitted two layouts for her sketch challenge. One of them is a "Sisters" layout, and the other is a "Chicago Bears" layout. If you get a chance, could you vote for my layouts? (Well, just vote for them if you actually like them!!) The voting is in two separate spots on the left column of her blog. Thanks!!

I REALLY need to finish scrapbooking 2005 and move on to 2006, and then I need to do some power layouts or something! I really want to close the gap on how far behind I am in my scrapbooking! Here's a birthday layout of my oldest daughter's birthday in 2005.


I used a Kimberly Hodges K&Company kit on this layout. I love the large letters that I used for the title because they're so colorful! I traced around them with a black fine point marker to make them pop off the page. I added epoxy stickers under the title. I added some colorful strips of another patterned paper, some cardstock stickers, and I added a journaling block that I created on the computer. I distressed the journaling block with ink. I added some small silver flower brads on the layout. My daughter's favorite color is blue, so she really likes this layout!


This is a close up of the first page! What cake decorating skills I have! She's so cute holding that cake!


I always try to get family shots on each and every birthday. I love these photos!

I have LOTS of running around to do today. I'm getting a little behind on blog hopping again, but I'll catch up with all of you soon. I'll be around to see what you've been creating! Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
